caantpayrent on Jodah's fun time

Hey man have you considered running; a pretty decent Tooth and Nail combo that works with or without Jodah

I've written up my version with some combo or powerful plays here.

Might be able give some ideas.

It sounds like you want to:

  1. Slow down opponents' ability to cast spells, which forces opponents to keep cards in hand
  2. Force opponents to discard, limiting their options
  3. Use discard triggers to punish opponents

This sounds like it can work with Bolas. The risk I'd point out is with the discard punishers, specifically ones like Megrim and Liliana's Caress. They can be a little fragile - once the opponent no longer has any cards, you stop getting triggers. They're nice incidental damage and can add up, but you can't rely on them to actually close out the game. Bolas is also not ideally suited to the stax plan - he doesn't inherently break symmetry, so there are much better options for hard stax.

Your MVP cards in a discard-based strategy are going to be Geth's Grimoire and Waste Not, with Notion Thief as a runner-up. You're playing a control game, and control requires keeping your hand full.

Wheels that discard are going to be excellent for you, getting a ton of discard triggers. Ignore wheels that shuffle and then draw without discarding.

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur would be a pretty amazing, synergistic reanimation target. You should definitely run some reanimation effects if you plan to force opponents to discard - you can grab tasty targets from your own deck or theirs. Reanimate, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Dance of the Dead are a good start.

For the stax package - Back to Basics is going to be your best target. Use it with Frozen AEther so that all opponents' lands enter tapped, and Basics can keep them tapped down.

Back to Basics doesn;t stop you from using your own fetches (even budget slow-fetches) since you only use those once - they don;t need to untap. Blood Moon works, and it sets your nonbasics to one of your actual colors, but it also turns all your fetches into Mountains. Watch out for that.

I'd also look at Ruination. It's MLD...but it only blows up non-basic lands. It's exactly what you're doing with the enchantments, but with removal.

You already seem to know the mana rock drill from your Nekusar deck. You want to lean heavily on the mana rocks - all of the 2CMC signets/talismans/Fellwar Stone. Fellwar is going to get much less useful once you land Bloood Moon though. Star Compass is useful since you'll be loading heavily on basic lands. Coldsteel Heart is useful to plug a specific color hole. Obviously Sol Ring. You're going to be looking for color fixing more than anything, so Chromatic Lantern is worth the extra mana, and any Mox you can afford are worthwhile (except Mox Amber, that one's less useful).

You need land fetching. Grixis Panorama is normally not a recommendation, but it can find any of your three colors, not just two, and you're already basically excluding fetchable duals with the stax effects. Journeyer's Kite and Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Armillary Sphere, Pilgrim's Eye, Skittering Surveyor, Solemn Simulacrum, Sword of the Animist, Wayfarer's Bauble are all at least playable. The ETB creatures are useful if you plan to abuse Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip's ETB effect - you can use blink effects and Panharmonicon to get extra triggers.

Blood Moon and Back to Basics are great, but they likely are not enough to consistently slow opponents enough to be wroth all of this workaround by themselves. Even Ruination doesn't add enough. Unfortunately Grixis doesn;t have any of the neat land-untap triggers like Nature's Will or Seedborn Muse - if it did, you could abuse things like Stasis and Rising Waters and Static Orb more easily. Still, you could support Winter Orb with enough mana rocks. Be sure to run good one-sided artifact removal like Vandalblast to keep opponents from using their own rocks.

And of course Omniscience can let you blow up all the artifacts and lands and still play what you want. You'll be running a ton of rocks anyway, which could ramp you into it fairly early.

Void Winnower can majorly cripple opponents, and Stranglehold and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen can stop them from tutoring answers (or lands...).

The big thing, though, is how you want to win. Stax doesn;t work super well on its own - you need to be using stax to slow your opponents down so that you can pull off your own win condition. Do you have any ideas on how youd like to win, even if just generally? Combat, combos, punisher effects like Megrim, mill, etc?

So incase you want a more casual deck; I just posted this on somneone else deck post that was after feed back and thought it might help'

It's highly tuned with a write up but just under that cedh level. have a look at the winning play section on either deck.

Card Options

Some options you could consider if youre keeping it a little more casual are;

Composite Golem + Nim Deathmantle and old classic = Infinite coloured mana

or

Palinchron + a mana doublers = Infinite mana. Casting Palinchron for WUBRG, and bouncing for 4cmc means we need 5 lands + 1 Doubler to be on an infinite coloured mana loop.

if we use Zendikar Resurgent as our doubler you have a way to draw the entire deck and win.

Tooth and Nail can be used to find Palinchron + Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and get both into play which will create infinite mana.

One thing to consider are using more mana doublers, as they work like Jodah for the most part..if youre saving 5 or 6 even 7cmc by using Jodah then having 7 lands into play + a mana doubler is very similar.

You can also run a deadly play tooth and nail into Arena Rector + Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. Use sidisi to exploit rector, put Omniscience into play and then find Enter the Infinite.

There some really strong plays you can make Jodah really fire...If you want more feed back or critique let me know, or ask away. Jodah has become my favourite commander..just so many options

@Maizena it's the instant speed vs sorcery speed that makes vindicate worse, if both were instants then vindicate would be one of the best options available.

@DrkNinja what is your goal with this deck? is this for a more casual group? or are you after a stronger deck?

I added a primer with the deck, If you're after a stronger deck have a look at the common mistakes section. Essentially it's the idea that we want to making strong impactfful plays if we have Jodah active, not use to Jodah to set up for future value.

Sunbird's Invocation I mention as an example, Also if your wanting a more casual deck then have a look at

So I wrote a primer to go with it but is this aimed at a more casual level?

why no Omniscience or Enter the Infinite?

Check out some of the combos and winning plays in my deck and see what you think.

Dude, I hate you. I want to dismantle 2 decks just to make this :/ thanks for the level of detail you put into it. I love being able tom understand the thought process by reading the card choices and their descriptions. Have you ever considered Omniscience?

Well, Arena Rector into Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and Academy Rector into Omniscience are both hilarious and good IMO.

I have run sacrifice outlets and Seedborn Muse to remove 4 creatures per turn cycle.
